After some jiggering with a shoe and measuring and discussion, he said it would be better for her to go barefoot awhile longer so her toes could grow back evenly and use hoof boots for any hard surface riding. She wears her toes down so quickly, she needs something. Anyway, his honesty and willingness to consider other options impressed me to no end. He then worked on the mule I was given last week. She's only about 12 or 13 hh and apparently her back feet hadn't been handled in a long time. I'd worked with her some and when Devin came, she was a little balky but settled right down and let him do all her feet. He as very gentle with her and she responded well. She's around 7 so had a long time to develop some cranky habits. So if you live up in the n.e. part of Texas, and need a new farrier, I sure can recommend one. He's trained, experienced, and quiet, and not a jerk with horses or people.
I love mine too ... he's young, punctual, polite .... I can't really speak to any specialty shoeing or anything .. I just have my guys trimmed.

The new Perot museum is supposed to be amazing! I'm hoping to take my GS Troop this year.

You must go to the Perot Museum, HorseMom! There are tons of interactive exhibits that are just as much fun for adults. I mean, where else can I go run a race against a T-Rex?!

Yes, but I wasn't sure if I could post it. His name is Devin Vick and he's from DeKalb. My husband and I wish we had met him sooner.

texasgal 400$ those shoes must have been on the sales rack.LOL
I know where Dekalb is not too far from Paris.
One of the reasons I moved so many horses with me to Collin county from Lamar is because Farriers are hard to come by. these horses that are to be sold or given away need to be kept on a schedule while being ridden and trained.
Kctops husband does a fine job. He is gentle and very reasonable.
kctop do I get a commission for any HF clients yalll get? Shalom

Oh and by the way. Do women really think straight men would be impressed by those shoes or think they enhance your beauty?
Just thought that since I had so many women here i could conduct an informal survey. Shalom

I've always been such a tomboy, I can care less what shoes are in style! I have my boots, and my tennis shoes! I almost never look at anyone elses shoes either! I never notice when someone gets a hair cut, new style/color. I'm not very good a "women" things. Especially house work! lol Just ask my husband! lol

But, I would think, if I was trying to get a mans attention, it shouldn't matter what your shoes look like.... unless they're covered in horse poo when you go out to eat! lol
